EC- book: Open innovation, open science, open to the world – A vision for Europe

European Commission, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, ‘Open innovation, open science, open to the world- A vision for Europe’ Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2016. ISBN: 978-92-79-57346-0. Pages: 102

This book brings together some of the key conceptual insights behind Open Innovation, Open Science and Open to the World and highlights actions that are already taking place or are being prepared. This publication shows how research and innovation is changing rapidly.

As set out in the chapter on Open Innovation, Europe is excelling at many things, but is not good enough at investing in innovation at speed and scale. The chapter on Open Science explores  Europe as the world’s largest producer of knowledge, and captures a systemic change to the way science and research have been carried out  to become more open, inclusive and interdisciplinary.
The chapter ‘Open to the World’ sets out the gains the EU can make by maintaining its presence at the highest level of international scientific endeavour and through promoting our competitive edge in global knowledge markets in the information age.

The ideas and initiatives described in this book seek stimulate anyone interested in European research and innovation, to encourage a debate and to lead to new ideas on what the European Union should do, should not do, or do differently.
